These are photographs of two unidentified farmsteads in Sheridan County. In the first photo, there is a frame barn with a fence. The house is built partly of sod. People are standing on the porch, one man is in the yard and two more men in front of the barn. Horse-drawn wagons are parked by the side of the sod house. In the second photo, a two-story house is shown with one story on the left and ridge extensions. Visible are an arched entry onto the porch and three chimneys. There is one windmill behind house and another by the barn. Pine trees are growing around the farmyard.

Date: Between 1880 and 1900
